Mandatory training: Sexual violence and sexual harassment
I recently wrote with an important update regarding University policies and procedures pertaining to sexual violence and sexual harassment. As part of the University’s efforts to improve its prevention and response to sexual violence and sexual harassment, we are rolling out a comprehensive sexual violence and sexual harassment prevention training program for all UC faculty and staff. Each member of the University community has a responsibility to make our campuses free from sexual violence and sexual harassment. This training program will better prepare all of us to fulfill this obligation and learn about our role in these efforts.
